17 Oct 2008

Airspan Networks has announced that Comarch, a global IT business solutions provider and systems integrator, has selected its WiMAX solution for a network deployment by ProMonte, the local subsidiary of Telenor and the largest mobile network operator in Montenegro. Comarch and ProMonte plan a country-wide WiMAX deployment to provide Montenegrin businesses with high quality IP services. The first phase of deployment includes ten Airspan base stations already installed in the major cities of Montenegro, with immediate plans to continue the deployment with additional base stations throughout the country. Anders Rendahl, Airspan’s VP of Sales and General Manager for EMEA, said ‘We are looking forward to the continued partnership with Comarch and the next phases of the ProMonte network deployment. This deployment is further evidence of Airspan’s strong and growing presence in the Balkan region and Europe at large, achieved by offering the most diverse and robust WiMAX solution.’

The nationwide project focuses on three areas: construction of the WiMAX access network, deployment and integration with the transport network, and access to Wi-Fi infrastructure and core equipment. The construction of the WiMAX network includes delivery and installation of WiMAX base stations in major cities of the country. The last stage of the project includes installation of OSS/BSS systems and core routing/switching equipment.
